A BIG Thank You!!

Many thanks to all the volunteers who made the 2019 Academic Staff Steering Committee Service Drive a Wonderful Success!

The ASSC Drive was led by the elected members of the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 ASSC including 2018-2019 Chair Cynthia MerrittMember-at-Large Nora Alhussainy, 2019-2020 Chair Marisa HendersonCo-Chair Jozy Hayek, AND included great support from many others including day of delivery assistance from Jon Troyer, Jackie Daugherty as well as all of the members who volunteered to collect donations in their department/buildings. 

This was another example where our collective efforts added up to a successful campaign and the teachers at both schools, Golightly Education Center and Burton International received an overwhelming amount of needed supplies for their classrooms

2019 Bargaining Survey & Take Action Form

The contract between the University and AAUP-AFT Local 6075 expires on March 20, 2021. We are, therefore, in the period in which we are preparing to negotiate our next contract. A small working group has prepared a preliminary survey to gather feedback from the membership on the issues they find most important. This is the link to that survey: Bargaining Survey #1

This survey will be used to plan events and write a more focused survey to gather your guidance as we head into negotiations. We believe listening to our membership is extremely important. In addition to this message, over the next couple of weeks, you will receive several more reminders to participate in Bargaining Survey #1.

The bargaining survey is, of course, anonymous. We want you to frankly identify most important to you.

In addition to asking you to respond to this survey, we want to offer you the opportunity to participate in our efforts to prepare for negotiations. Bargaining takes a lot of time and work. The Take Action form lists a number of ways you can get involved.

Remember, you are the union. We will best succeed by working together to negotiate a new and better contract,
